Bungle Bungles - 25th August 2009
Not having a big tough 4WD to tackle the reportedly rough even for a 4WD track into the Bungle Bungles, we instead took the quick and easy (but expensive) option of a scenic flight from Kununurra. After flying south over the Ord Irrigation Area, the massive Lake Argyle and a few cattle stations and ranges, we spent 20 minutes flying over the Bungle Bungle Ranges. The most impressive sight in the range are the distinctive striped beehive domes (which unsurprisingly feature in all photos of the area, although there are also gorges and rock formations other than the domes). Unfortunately, it was all over so quickly, although the sight of the Arygle Diamond Mine on our return trip was also interesting.
